Racheal is a humble and softly spoken, yet confident and intelligent lady from Uganda. She hails from Kyatoko in Rukungiri district, southwestern Uganda, belonging to the Mukiga tribe and is a mother to one child currently enrolled in baby class. Being an orphan, she was brought up by her grandmother, who managed to educate her up to senior four. Subsequently, she pursued further studies at an institute, where she obtained a certificate in secretarial studies. She is the youngest of four siblings, with her brother engaged in the bodaboda business and her sisters married and engaged in farming. Despite her academic qualifications, Rachael struggled to secure employment in her chosen profession and thus turned to farming to support her family. She cultivates food crops for household consumption and sells the surplus to generate income. Her husband works as a builder, and they reside in a traditional two-room semi-permanent house made of mud and reeds. During her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family. She is currently expecting her third child. Her doctors recommend that she deliver via a caesarean section because of her medical history, as her previous two pregnancies were delivered via cesarean section, with the second child tragically passing away after birth. She has been managing diabetes for almost four years, though she reports no pregnancy-related disorders except for slight bleeding in the first trimester, but her doctors consider her high-risk and want to best ensure the safety of both mother and child. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is helping Racheal undergo a C-Section on February 16th. This procedure will cost $252, and Racheal needs your support. Rachael says, “I need support since I have no other way of getting money to pay for my surgery; hopefully, with support, I will have a successful delivery and a live baby.”

Jyleen is a baby from Kenya. She is the last born in a family of three children. Her family is not well off financially, but both of her parents work hard to provide for their family. The family has medical coverage through a national program but their request to fund this surgery was rejected since they have exhausted their yearly limit. The family cannot raise the required amount of money to pay for the care that she needs. Jyleen was diagnosed with spina bifida before she was born and had a repair done immediately at birth, and she recovered well. One month post the surgery, she was diagnosed with hydrocephalus and had a shunt inserted to help drain the excess fluid in her brain. The shunt later failed and so she had a follow up procedure to help her. Her family chose to bring her to our medical partner BethanyKids for post-operation clinic reviews and on arrival, Jayleen was examined, and the doctors realized that she was put on a metallic shunt which may cause serious infections so she has now been scheduled to undergo a surgery to revise the shunt. Jyleen has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a condition in which excess cerebrospinal fluid accumulates in the brain and increases intracranial pressure. As a result of her condition, Jyleen has been experiencing an increasing head circumference, sunken eyes, high fevers and poor feeding. Without treatment, Jyleen will experience severe physical and developmental delays. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $720 to cover the cost of surgery for Jyleen that will treat her hydrocephalus. The procedure is scheduled to take place on February 16th and will drain the excess fluid from Jyleen's brain. This will reduce intracranial pressure and greatly improve her quality of life. With proper treatment, Jyleen will hopefully develop into a strong, healthy young girl. Jyleen’s mother says, “Every time I think that she is now done with her treatment, something else comes up.”

Alice is a humble lady of few words from Uganda. She is a mother of two, both delivered by Caesarean section, with the firstborn in 2018 and the second in 2019. Both of her children are currently studying. As the firstborn and a double orphan in a family of three, Alice had to take care of her siblings first. Her brother is a teacher, and her sister is in business. This delayed her marriage, as she got married at 28 years old. Additionally, she initially faced challenges getting pregnant for several years after marriage. Due to a lack of school fees, she only completed senior four but did not proceed with further education. Alice makes a living through farming, but due to limited land, she mainly grows food crops for home consumption and sells off the surplus to generate income for the family. She nowadays feels slight abdominal pain whenever she engages in strenuous activities. During her free time, she enjoys spending time with her family. She is currently expecting her third child. Her doctors recommend that she deliver via a caesarean section. This way, doctors can ensure the safety of both mother and child. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is helping Alice undergo a C-Section on December 28th. This procedure will cost $252, and Alice needs your support. Her income is insufficient to cover the expenses needed for her surgery, and she therefore appeals for your support. Alice says, “I hope to deliver well, in good health, and I expect the best of my delivery once I am given a chance to deliver under your support.”

Freedom is a lively, sociable young boy with an incredible sense of humor and respect. He exudes confidence and prefers to tackle questions independently. When discussing his future goals, he repetitively shares his ambition to become the president of Uganda. This prompts laughter from his family who have pointed out that there has only been one president of Uganda in their lifetimes. However, he confidently counters, expressing a belief that he'll have passed away by the time he grows up, presenting his chance to become president and revealing a level of maturity beyond his years. He is the second-to-last born in a family of six, with two brothers and three sisters, all still pursuing their education. Academically, he excels, ranking second in a class of sixty-seven pupils last term. He enjoys playing football at school and assists his mother with chores like fetching water and collecting firewood. His parents, who work as farmers, cultivate a small piece of land to meet their family's food needs and generate income by selling some crops. Since his birth, Freedom has been dealing with a supraumbilical hernia, resulting in umbilical swelling and persistent health issues. He experiences abdominal pain after eating, episodes of constipation, difficulty urinating, and limitations in physical activities. Due to financial constraints, his parents initially refrained from seeking medical intervention. However, his symptoms persisted and worsened. Fortunately, he was able to meet the doctors at Karoli Lwanga Hospital in Nyakibale the care center of our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH). The doctors at AMH were able to quickly diagnose and schedule him for a hernia repair on December 28th. AMH is now seeking $230 to raise the cost of Freedom's procedure. Once completed, this procedure aims to improve his quality of life, enabling him to live more comfortably and confidently. Freedom's mother expresses her hope, stating, “I hope my son will recover well after the operation and continue his studies in good health.”

Stenchy is a two-year old child from Haiti. He has one brother and two sisters. Stenchy has been diagnosed with hydrocephalus, a condition in which excess cerebrospinal fluid--the fluid which surrounds the brain–accumulates in the brain, increasing intracranial pressure. This accumulation of excess fluid has caused Stenchy’s head to expand beyond a healthy range. The hydrocephalus causes Stenchy to feel very sleepy and not act like his usual self, which is worrying to his family. Stenchy was brought to the hospital in a very weakened condition. A temporary tube was placed in his head on an emergency basis to drain the excess fluid. His condition has stabilized and now a permanent shunt--a flexible plastic tube--can be placed in his head to redirect the cerebrospinal fluid into another part of his body. The shunt typically isn’t ever removed, and regular checkups are important to make sure it’s working. Without treatment, Stenchy will experience severe physical and developmental delays. Our medical partner, Project Medishare, is requesting $957 to cover the cost of surgery for Stenchy at Hospital Bernard Mevs to treat his hydrocephalus. This is the only site in Haiti where this care is currently available, and the procedure is scheduled to take place on October 19th. This treatment will greatly improve his quality of life and Stenchy will hopefully develop into a strong, healthy young boy. His family is very concerned about him and will be relieved when he returns to his normal behavior and can leave the hospital to be back at home.
